WATCH: New trailer arrives for superhero horror movie Brightburn

March 7th, 2019 by Marc Comments

The new trailer has arrived for Brightburn and it looks like Superman has gotten really scary!

The movie, from writers Mark and Brian Gunn draws on the idea of what would happen if Superman – as a boy – had decided he wanted to go full psycho.

And it certainly seems to be an effective effort.

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?

With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

Directed by: David Yarovesky

Written by: Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn

Cast: Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and Meredith Hagner

Brightburn arrives on May 24th, 2019

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
